Weekly Photo Challenge: Transient

with 3 comments

DSCN6926

The snow goose (Chen caerulescens), a transient through southwestern British Columbia. Formerly they would travel on to Mexico in the winter before returning to the tundra in the spring. They seem to be spending more time here each year, causing concerns due to their voracious appetites – and copious evacuations – causing damage to playing fields and parks while they are here. Lots more information in the wikipedia article.

My picture was taken in March, 2010 in Richmond BC

  3. We have the same issues here in the Chicago area with the Canada geese. Ours are prodigious poopers, too. 😦
